The Federal Older Americans Act and the New York State Elder Law concerning aging network activities require each Area Agency on Aging (AAA) to establish an Advisory Council. The Advisory Council is mostly composed of older adults, appointed by Supervisors from each town in Washington County, representatives from senior groups and community providers. The Advisory Council reviews current aging programs and services and makes recommendations for additional programming to meet local needs. They are the key link between the community and the AAA in communicating the needs and concerns of older New Yorkers.
